New Release + Release Blitz: The Secret by Kristen Proby

The Secret by Kristen Proby is now live!

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a forbidden romance. The Secret is the first in the Single in Seattle series!

Vaughn is everything I’m supposed to stay away from. Sexy. Cocky. And famous.
I grew up in a family full of wealthy celebrities. My father, Luke Williams, is the celebrity of them all. A superstar actor and producer, my father knows the downside of living in the spotlight. And because of that, he sheltered my siblings and me from everything Hollywood entailed. We didn’t attend premieres. We weren’t photographed. There were no friendships with other celebrities’ children.
The limelight couldn’t touch us.
But now, at twenty-five, I’m ready to start my life, working for my father’s production company in downtown Seattle–until Vaughn Barrymore walks through the door.
He can’t keep his hands off me. He’s completely forbidden, but I can’t help falling for the sweet, complicated man.
When–and it’s when not if–my family finds out that I’ve been keeping this secret, will I have to choose between the man I love and those who mean the most to me? Or, by some miracle, can I have both?

Tracey’s Review

I’m that reader that loves the epilogues, the bonus scenes, the ‘6 months later’ add-ons. So it only stands to reason that when I heard that Kristen Proby was ready to start giving us books about the kids of her Seattle folks, I was over the moon. I mean, the beloved characters from a beloved series, and we get MORE?! Yes, please! THE SECRET is the first book in the Single in Seattle series, books that follow the kids of the Montgomery clan, one of my all-time faves, and I could not be happier.

It makes perfect sense that any daughter of Luke Williams and Natalie Conner Williams is going to be strong, confident, and a lovely person inside and out. Olivia is all of that and more, a success in her own right, refusing to ride the coattails of her famous dad.

Vaughn Barrymore is entertainment royalty, the heir apparent of a family famous for their position both in the movie business and in the news. All of these things also mean that he’s off limits for Olivia, but following that rule is harder than she ever expected.

THE SECRET is the perfect segue into this next chapter of Kristen’s Seattle universe, and I absolutely loved it. Sass, steam, passion, self-worth, all of the things that readers have come to expect in Kristen’s heroines, and a man that loves her exactly for who and what she is. Fans of the With Me in Seattle series will love THE SECRET, and, like me, be eagerly awaiting THE SCANDAL, the next book in the queue. If you haven’t entered this world, you must, and do it quickly. You will absolutely love it. ❤️


Kristen Proby has published more than forty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion and Romancing Manhattan Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two cats.
